“Tracy Grammer is a brilliant artist and unique individual. Her voice is distinctive, as is her mastery over the instruments she plays.” - Joan Baez

“Tracy Grammer has that elusive quality of being able to speak directly to another person's heart - instantly bypassing all of the usual infrastructure - the moment she starts singing. She's great.“ - Richard Shindell

“Her pure voice conveys the simple truths of these songs; her gifts as a musician are like that of a painter who is a master of chiaroscuro, offering light and shadow at every turn.“ - Mary Chapin Carpenter

“One of the finest pure musicians anywhere in folkdom.” - Boston Globe

"One of the finest interpretive artists on the contemporary folk scene." - Montreal Gazette

"[Grammer] flies solo with a style and grace that must be heard to be believed … she is a voice to be reckoned with.” - Village Records

“Armed with a few of the sassier members of the string family, and a voice as nuanced and strong as you could hope for, Grammer delivers ... with a supernatural force that funnels straight through your ear to the deep, deep center of your heart.” - The Missoula Independent

“Tracy has one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard in my life. There's also a sadness and sorrow and pain and depth of knowledge to Tracy's playing. I really think there's nobody like her in the world.” - Dave Carter, quoted in Dirty Linen

Tracy Grammer

Sunday, March 4, 2018

At the home of Joe and Bev Angel

Doors open: 2:30 PM, Concert begins: 3:00 PM

Tracy Grammer rose to acclaim as half of the "postmodern, mythic American folk" duo, Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer. From 1998 until Dave’s untimely death in 2002, the duo released three internationally celebrated, folk chart-topping albums.  Tracy has kept to the road, becoming one of folk music's most beloved artists. Renowned for her spring water-clear alto, perfectly intoned violin, and guitar playing that is by turns percussive and delicate, Tracy is also a masterful storyteller with an ease and charisma on stage -- not to mention a riotous sense of humor.  Stories about her first meeting with Dave Carter, Carter's quirks and fancies, and about Grammer's own misadventures and missteps are woven thoughtfully into the set list to create a uniquely personal concert that connects audiences to performer.  Additionally, Tracy has begun down the songwriter's path as part of RealWomenRealSongs, and is sharing her fresh, fledgling efforts -- and the stories behind them – with her audience.  Her 2012 release, Little Blue Egg, was the #1 most-played album on Folk Radio for that year.  Tracy's latest album, Low Tide which was released in January, is a collection of original songs.
